Massey Ferguson - Model 9500 Series - Axial Combines
Ever since Massey Ferguson® introduced the first self-propelled combine in 1938, our commitment to your next harvest has been unwavering. The Massey Ferguson 9500 Series integrate simplicity, innovative design features, excellent capacity, and unparalleled reliability into a combine designed as a leader in the market, not just a competitor. Every aspect of our new 9500 Series has been rethought. And many of the features completely reengineered. All in an effort to help you put more clean grain in the tank at the end of the day. With less downtime, less maintenance, and less fatigue. In terms of our MF9540 and MF9560 models, we didn’t just add new components, we designed entirely new systems.
4-strand Feed Chain
You'll have up to 33% more support to feed material through system in a smoother, more constant pressure.
Our MF 9540 and MF 9560 combines both feature a wide 55.4' (1,408 mm) feed house. The feed house on the MF 9520 is 44.1' (1,121 mm) wide. All combines use a floating front feed drum equipped with a shock absorber to prevent drum bounce and keep the feed chain in constant contact with the incoming crop. MF 9560 and MF 9540 feature four strands, while the MF9 695 uses three strands of number 557 drive chain equipped with long life chrome pins.
Large coil tension springs keep feed chains adjusted properly in heavy crop conditions. Heavy duty bolt on conveyor feed slats to keep the crop moving to the full width helical vane front feed conveyer.
9540/9560 Feeding System
With the feeder house now extended 6.4”, the header is more visible to the operator. In addition, the extra space allowed both the fixed and variable header drive pulleys to be increased in size. Combined with heaver shafts and feed conveyor drive, the new system is capable of over 50% more horsepower.
9520 Processing SystemThe Massey Ferguson 9520 utilizes the proven cylinder bar design to thresh the crop during multiple passes, gently allowing the grain to fall through the concaves. Any remaining grain is separated from the crop residue by centrifugal force as the crop passes over the separator grates. The design delivers crop quality, reduces losses, and lowers operating costs.
The MF9520 rotor features a 27.5' (700 mm) diameter by 140' (3556 mm) long. Seven concaves wrap 160 degrees around to provide 2,205 in² (1.42 m²) of concave area for gentle, yet complete threshing.
9540/9560 Trident Processing SystemThe heart of the 9540 and 9560 combines is the Trident Processor. The processor includes a newly designed segmented rotor, multi-zone feeding and a processor cage which includes suspended easy-to-change concaves.
The multi-zone intake feeds the 31.5 in. (800 mm) diameter, 140 in. (3,556 mm) long segmented rotor. The segmented style rotor is designed to better control crop flow from feeding to discharge. In this system the crop is threshed and released during multiple passes, gently allowing the grain to fall through the concaves. Any remaining grain is separated from the crop residue by centrifugal force as the crop passes over the separator grates. The harvesting action of the segmented style improves crop quality and reduces losses all well using a lower power consumption.
9540/9560 Multi-Zone Intake
The multi-zone intake housing system allows for three zones of controlled material feeding into the processor. The first zone is on the right hand side which penetrates the deepest to allow the flighting to feed the material in to the threshing area. The second zone feeds material middle to the top and is not as deep as the first zone. The last zone is the shallowest and feed material from the left hand side to the top of the rotor. This multi-zone pattern allows for a even feeding and improved crop quality. The housing naturally transitions material 90 degrees from the feederhouse into the processor allowing for enhanced threshing performance while taking less power consumption.
